VBeam Perfecta

Vbeam Perfecta (pulsed dye laser) has long been recognized as the gold standard for the treatment of vascular lesions. It uses advanced, proven technology to maximize safe and effective results.

Dr. Contreras has been treating patients with pulsed dye laser since 2002, and VBeam laser specifically since 2010.  Our patients deserve experienced care from their trusted team at Core Dermatology, and that is what you can expect when you have laser treatment with us.

Vbeam FDA-cleared indications include:
  • Benign vascular lesions
  • Cherry angiomas
  • Nose vessels
  • Port wine stains (birthmarks)
  • Facial vessels (“broken blood vessels”) 
  • Scars
  • Acne (active lesions and leftover red marks)
  • Red colored stretch marks
  • Poikiloderma (sun damage on neck)
  • Warts
  • Post-procedure bruising
  • Some benign pigmented lesions
  • Rosacea

How it works:  Vbeam Perfecta delivers laser energy through the skin where it is absorbed by the targeted blood vessels that shrink and fade away in response. While some lesions can be treated in one session, sometimes 2-3 sessions will be required for optimal improvement.  No anesthetic is required, and most people find the discomfort of the treatment tolerable without even topical anesthetic.  Some degree of swelling can be expected for 2-3 days at the treated sites, and scattered bruising can be seen for an average of about 7 days.  Results occur over the 4-6 weeks after the treatment, and follow up treatments, if necessary are scheduled 4-6 weeks apart.
